When you’re as successful and influential as Alicia Keys, calling someone “incredible” means a lot. Yet it’s among the colorful, inspirational words she shares with us this Mother’s Day about her own mom. 




Q: What does your mother mean to you?  

Alicia: My mother is superhuman to me! She is my miracle worker. She gave me everything I need to be a strong, empathetic woman. I’m not sure she even understands how INCREDIBLE she is!!! 


Q: If you had to describe your mother in 3 adjectives, what would they be?  

Alicia: Spicy, loyal, straight shooter. 


Q: How has motherhood impacted your relationship to self-care and the way you show up for your mind, body, and spirit? 

Alicia: Motherhood has definitely made me more aware of how much I juggle. I realize that if you don’t take care of yourself, no one will. You have to show people how you expect to be treated by treating yourself. I only learned this as a mother.
